Manchester United beat Watford 2-1

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial secured a scrappy 2-1 home win for Manchester United against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday as the Red Devils leapfrogged Arsenal into the last Champions League spot.

As Ole Gunnar Solskjaer celebrated his first match in charge as permanent manager, the win lifted United to fourth in the standings, one point above the Gunners. Arsenal has a match in hand.

On a sunny afternoon at Old Trafford, United did not impress. Rashford concluded one of his team's few chances at the end of a rapid counterattack to give the hosts the lead in the 28th minute. Watford continued to impress after the interval but Martial doubled United's lead from close range in the 72nd.

Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled one back with a last-minute effort.

Solksjaer, a former United striker, was named the club's permanent manager on Thursday, having replaced the fired Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in December. Under the Norwegian coach, United has lost only once in 14 league games.
